After 5 weeks living in Kager, Kenya, I’ve been amazed at the impact Jubilee Village Project is having in this village.  Nearly every area of the community has been touched by their programs!  From farmers working toward a brighter future with new techniques and crops, to women finding new tools that are revolutionizing the way they care for their families, this village will never be the same.  And don’t forget the students who are now able to continue their education in ways they never dreamed possible.

But, as always, it is the people behind JVP – the global partners and local champions – who have impressed me more than the projects.  And it’s their faith and perseverance that are making this transformation possible.  To read more about what’s been happening in Kager, take a look at these stories.

Joining the Jubilee!

While Barry and the interns prepare for a summer in Ukraine, I’m preparing for my second trip to Kenya. There’s a lot to look forward to!
